Assynt Scotland

Buailard Croft House

The area

Within a 5 minute scenic drive of the NC500, sitting high above Culkein Bay on the Stoer peninsula, Buailard's sitting room overlooks some of the most spectacular and breathtaking wilderness scenery in Europe, as do all the bedrooms. Depending on the weather, the mountains to the north east, including Foinaven (the second highest Corbett), will either reveal themselves all at once and with startling clarity or, one by one, gradually emerge from the cloaking clouds of mist. Guests have been known to while away an entire day watching the unfolding drama...

Buailard is well positioned to explore the area and local businesses, close to Lochinver and all the amenities and attractions it has to offer.
